    Neat. Alt mode looks aces (Man With the Golden Gun, y'all). Bot mode, well, it's not really my bag (I'm thinking the bottom parts of his feet will match the rest of his body's gold color over time due to cosmic rust). Interesting that they would display this MP-05 gold version Megs opposite against MP-10 Optimus Prime rather than MP-01L (or a similar mold).

    It actually looks real nice, alas I despise this mold.

    :lolol 

    It's probably because MP-10 is more recent and currently is the definitive MP Optimus Prime.

    So the whole figure is gold except for the feet which probably will turn gold-ish like the original MP-05 did :')

    It looks like Takara took a picture of Megatron from that angle so he wouldn't tower over Optimus

    Did any retailers offer this figure unmodified/ without the orange cap addition?

    I believe TFSource does. I ordered MP-05G Gold Megatron from them and it was unmodified.

    For some reason I don't fully understand, I love some of the bonus accessories that Takara and Hasbro Asia put out. Grimlock's throne was a bust, but some of the others have been great. Anyway, I had no interest in this golden Megs, but I really wanted that Reflector accessory. I was never willing to pay big bucks for it, but recently I saw an eBay ad for the little camera accessory brand new for under $20 shipped:
    Transformers Reflector Display Only Piece Non Transforming | eBay

    At first I thought it was weird that no one jumped on these at this price, especially since a few have gone up for auction recently for $10 more. Eventually I hit the buy button...and I am sure glad I did. Mine arrived today and having it in hand, I can say that this is a great little accessory. Not worth more than $20...but definitely worth picking up if you find one for a good price. Oddly, no one has purchased one from this seller since I purchased mine. It arrived well packaged and in mint condition.

    If it looks as rough as in the auction pics, there is no way I'd pay $20 + shipping for it.

    It's a nice accessory, but I think most want a real Masterpiece Reflector at this point. (Which probably will never happen since Takara is so damn Decepticonphobic.)

    Try the KFC or FansToys versions, not only do you get a mini reflector but also a proper MP reflector too.

    You're right, the auction pics are terrible and probably go a long way toward explaining people's lack of enthusiasm. Mine arrived MISB though with a perfect Decepticon symbol painted on it.
